Acrylic card

I saw this at a scrapbooking show last year and thought it was very cool to use an envelope as a pocket for the inside of the card. Here is my version. I used one acrylic sheet as the back of the card . I Stamped it with brown Stazon ink, along with the envelope, and attached to the acrylic card back. Added some ribbon and a flower to the front. The card is about 5" x 7". Easy project and you can make it as pretty or plain and simple as you want. Thanks for stopping by and I have a great New Year's !!!!

Encyclopedia of me album

I have done a few more pages in my " Encyclopedia of Me" album. I love doing these - just have not had lots of time lately. I still have several letters to do.
My word for "U" are US of A and underestimate. This is a fun process, finding your words that relate to you.
My "B" words are beachcomer and buttons. This is a fun project and have enjoyed it very much. Another project from AC Bailey. Have a great day and start an "Encyclopedia of me" album soon.

October Afternoon scraps!!!!

This is the negative from the die cut sheet of journal boxes. I show this to you so you won't throw them away. I cut about 1/8" off all sides , of the die cut sheet, so a small
edge of the Bazzill cardstock shows, to make a nice frame for the layout. I used some Jenni Bowlin mini alphas and American Crafts thickers to spell out the names. I love how it came out!! Hope you give it a try.

Handmade flowers!!

We had a flower swap over at AC Bailey
These are the flowers that I received in the swap. I was pleasantly surprised with what was sent. The girls in the swap did an awesome job. Thanks to all the gals!!!! Stop by and say hi. We have some great ideas on the forum for Christmas "handmade" gifts!!!
